Cook rice according to package directions; omit salt. Drain well; set aside.
While rice cooks, toss pork with 1/2 teaspoon garlic and 1/2 teaspoon ginger. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork; sauté 3 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; keep warm.
Heat 1 teaspoon oil in pan over medium-high heat; add 1 teaspoon garlic and 1/2 teaspoon ginger; sauté 30 seconds. Add rice, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and vinegar; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in pork; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.
This was a good, quick, weeknight sort of recipe. I did add more garlic & ginger to the pork, as well as a tbsp or so of low sodium soy sauce to spread the flavoring around. I also added some lightly steamed broccoli when I added the pork back to the rice to bring in more veggies. I would love to give this 5 stars just for ease & tastiness, but I can't see this as special occasion.
We liked this stir fry recipe for weeknights. Too many stir fry recipes require so much prep work, but this one was simple and straight forward. Also simple enough that the sesame seed flavor actually came through.
I was not a fan- tasted too much vinegar and ginger (I used fresh, couldn't find bottled) even though I had added extra rice. It also felt like it took 45+ minutes to prep and cook, but I tend to run long :)
This was easy and delicious. My super picky husband and daughter both liked it. Adding the onions at the end allowed for me to have onions and my husband to leave them off of plate since he hates onions.
I will add this to my list of keepers.
